Marine officials are investigating an incident in which a five-gallon bucket fell from an Osprey aircraft and smashed through the roof of a business near the Miramar Marine Corps Air Station in San Diego.

The bucket apparently fell Wednesday night when the business, a car renovation firm, was closed. The hole in the roof was discovered Thursday. No one was injured.

Marine officials on Thursday went to the business to survey the damage and begin determining restitution. Hazardous-materials specialists from the San Diego Fire-Rescue Dept. examined the damage and determined the liquid was not dangerous.
